Good morning, happy Saturday, and welcome to June. Do you remember last year when it was the start of a very long, hot Summer, I'm hoping that we get a little more of that! The fun new challenge over at Country View Crafts has been chosen by the lovely Jane, and it's 'It's a Bugs Life' Only a couple of months ago I was in Africa in Disney enjoying this film, though it seems like years ago now. Here's what I've made.
I started with a Clarity stencil and some Distress Inks and brushes.
Then I used my very favourite 'happy birthday' sentiment which is a JOFY one for Paper Artsy.
I made a bit of a mess of it at the top, but it hardly showed, till I tried to correct it then it was much more obvious doh!
The stamped butterfly is by Rubber Dance, and the flying critters are Tim Holtz's Geo Springtime , and Geo Insects. I cut these with some wax paper and the pieces fell out beautifully, but then I lost the will to live trying to paper piece them so I just cut them a few times in different papers.
The 'wild and free' is by Rubber Dance, and I've matted and layered another 'happy birthday' so all's well again.
I hope you have a very happy June, and be kind to the bugs, we need the bugs - except flies, no one needs flies!
Take care, and thanks very much for looking x
